2017 Amelia County Spring "Green Revolution" Environmental Door Decoration Contest

Ms. Gibbs’ 3rd grade class at Amelia County Elementary School took first place in the 2017 Amelia County Spring “Green Revolution” environmental door decoration contest held recently. The students decorated a door that stated “Don’t Trash Our Ocean!” that featured sea turtles made from ROAR event water bottles, fish made from bottle caps, sea horses made from leftover paper plates, seaweed made from egg cartons and letters made from bottle wrappers. Second place went to Ms. Easter’s kindergarten class with their “Give a Hoot, Don’t Pollute!” decoration made from cardboard paper towel and toilet paper rolls and used newspapers. Ms. Harris’s kindergarten class won third place with a creative door decorated with unique recycled materials. Each class received a prize ribbon, and each student received an event t-shirt, a McDonald’s Happy Meal coupon and a 4-H wristband. The Amelia County Department of Environmental Management and the Amelia County 4-H would like to thank all of the classes that participated as the judges had fun as well as a hard time choosing from the many phenomenal designs. We would also like to thank our corporate sponsors Waste Management of Virginia and McDonald’s of Amelia for providing the prizes for the winning classrooms. 2017 marks the 10th anniversary of the Spring Green/Clean program, an annual community-wide spring clean-up, beautification and educational effort designed to improve and show pride in Amelia County.
